Today is the day of Amazon Prime Day - Amazon's own version of Black Friday, where the retailer comes up with a lot of deal on products in its warehouses and gives you the chance to snag a deal. It had more sign-ups during 2017's event than any other day in the company's history, Amazon said at the time, without providing specific numbers. In addition to thousands of great discounts in every category, there are some wonderful Amazon Prime Day video game deals up for grabs, including games, hardware, and accessories. In previous years Amazon have given its Prime members exclusive deals on instruments, accessories and more.
